Mystic/Spellweaving Bard

Useful Idiot

Stratics Veteran
Hello all,

I have been away from the game awhile and have a build/playstyle question. Currently I am playing my bard,

Music - 100
Provo- 92
Magery -100
Mystic - 95
Focus - 100
Meditation -100
Spellweaving - 30

I had peace and am currently dropping it and raising weaving. I figure meditation can go also. I thought the bard with mystic/spellweaving would be a pretty good build for champ spawns and the like. Is there anything I should change build wise? Am i missing something that is needed? Right now, I just provo and cast RC. It seems to do the job. What spells should I be casting? I know RC is big for mystic, but what about weaving? I liked the idea of a self rez and death blow. I heard magery with no eval and meditation is pretty useless, which is ok, cause i just use it for invis and travel. Will my mana regen ok without meditation using mystic and weaving spells? Also, I try to stay in a 100% LRC and as much lower mana cost as I can find. I had FC 2 and FCR 7 at one point but died and lost gear. (getting gear back together)

So, what is your opinion? Is this a solid build? and what should i be casting? Thanks for your time.

With zero med.. You can always get a studded suit.. With high mana gen and 55% lmc .. So ur spells cost 15% less then just 40% lmc on a leather suit

Does Lower Mana Cost (LMC) also have effect on the Bard "Masteries" consumption of mana ?

If so, just like the masteries were regular spells or in a different way ?

Thanks !

Yes LMC affects both the upkeep and cast cost of the bard masteries.
